: I bought my 13 year old son a QS7 for Christmas. We have a decent PC (330 MHz Pentium II). I know very little about the synthesizer and the manual might as well be printed in Russian. We hooked up the QS to the PC with the MIDI cable, provided by the dealer, to the gameport of the PC. I called Alesis and got the scoop on the proper setting to connect to the PC. We cannot record, playback, or for that matter, even get sound. The soundcard in my CPU is listed as a 3D PCI (ESS Solo 1). Any tips, tricks or general information on getting this thing up and running would be greatly appreciated. I'm also looking for a good, basic information source for a layman, such as myself, to begin learning. Thanks.

I don`t know what your trying to do with the key board ,sequence? if so its best to set your synth to mix mode 00 multitmbrl
and make sure in your sequencing program to select
your souncards midi in as a midi source ,to get sound into the
computer you will need a mini plug Y adapter
and a couple of cables to go to your left and right outputs on the keyboard
If this sounds to basic I`m just trying to cover all the bases
You might mak another post and define what your trying to do with your
keyboard and computer .
I had a little difficulty getting started but I`m getting the hang of it now.
